Northwestern F Swopshire out for season

Northwestern forward Jared Swopshire will miss the remainder of the 2012-13 season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Tuesday.

Swopshire injured his knee during the second half of Saturday's loss at Iowa.

"We all feel badly for Jared that he won't be able to play out the remainder of his final collegiate season," Northwestern head men's basketball coach Bill Carmody said. "He has been a terrific addition to the program, both on and off the court. He was enjoying a very productive year and was playing his most consistent basketball of the season when the injury occurred. There is every indication that he'll experience a full recovery."

Swopshire, a graduate student who played his first three seasons at Louisville, started all 24 of the Wildcats' games this season, averaging 9.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.
